Gallery hires two artists for spring after-school art program

Artist/instructors Dwayne Davis and Ivanna Ko have been hired by the Station House Gallery to teach the gallery’s after-school art classes.

Artist/instructors Dwayne Davis and Ivanna Ko have been hired by the Station House Gallery to teach the gallery’s after-school art classes during May and June, says gallery manager Diane Toop.

Children taking the classes will be encouraged in a structured manner to explore their imaginations.

After-school art classes will break for the summer.

Toop says artist Kathryn Steen will return to teach children’s art classes during July and possibly offer classes in August.

In other gallery news the Cariboo Piecemakers Quilting Club has also donated a king-sized quilt as a raffle piece to raise funds for the gallery.

Raffle ticket purchasers must be 19 years and older.

The deadline is also fast approaching on May 31 for artists to submit their proposals for participation in the summer show at the Station House Gallery.

The gallery has issued an open call for submissions for art work inspired by the Potato House project.

Accepted submissions will be on exhibition at the Station House Gallery July 6 to Sept. 1 with an opening reception on Thursday, July 5 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Artist entry forms are available at Dandelion Living at 271 Oliver St. and must be submitted to Dandelion Living by 5 p.m. May 31.

The Potato House at 49 Borland St. was once owned by local gardeners and avid potato farmers Alcina and Manuel Quintela.

Through their inspiring past, the Potato House Sustainable Community Society or Potato House Project was formed in late 2009.

The goal of the project is to promote and carry out programs that inspire personal and community self-sufficiency through a high profile drop-in centre and garden space for the educational benefit of citizens.

The deadline is also coming up Aug. 31 for artists — individuals or groups — to submit proposals for the monthly shows taking place during the 2013 exhibition year.
